What did you do to achieve the 175: Adopt a new method of studying, read the Economist everyday, change your attitude? The reason being is that I have a 165 (retook after a 159), which initially brought some happiness to my life; now it appears that it'll result in many stinging rejection letters (gpa 3.24).
The 175 more than offsets your gpa for a lot of great schools.


Well, I would say that I studied both harder and smarter this time, meaning I did many more preptests than I did when preparing the first time, and I used superior methods. I didn't know about Powerscore or the LG Bible the first time, and this time around I bought that book and the LR Bible months ago and worked through them completely before beginning my PTs. Then I did every PT from 40-60 in full, and did most of the LG sections from the others.

General advice for anyone looking to improve on the LSAT: First learn how to attack the test, and then practice it over and over and over... do as many PTs as you can.

why are you not applying to those schools unless you get a fee waiver. Law school is a big investment. In the grand scheme of things 500 bucks is nothing.

Also, with a 175 you will prob get into some great schools including a couple of t14s. The question you have to ask yourself is: how bad do oyu want to live in the state of washington? Enough to risk being unemployed? Schools like cornell, vandy,usc will give you almost a 50/50 shot at biglaw. UW will prob give you a 20% chance at something similar.
